Lady Gaga's bloody perfume

Singer Lady Gaga says her new perfume may have been based on blood and semen, but it smells like an ‘expensive hooker’. “I wanted to extract sort of the feeling and sense of blood and semen from molecular structures, so that’s where [the rumours] came from,” said the 25-year-old singer, adding, “That is in the perfume, but it doesn’t smell like that. Actually, the perfume smells like an expensive hooker.”

Gaga, who signed the license in September 2010, had allegedly requested that the scent smell of "blood and semen." Her request was for the fragrance to be based on the molecular structure of the bodily fluids, not the actual aromas themselves.

“You get the after-feeling of sex from the semen and the blood is primal,” the Daily Mail quoted the Born This Way hitmaker’s as saying. The blood element is based on the molecular make-up of the star’s own blood. “It was taken out of my own blood sample so it’s a sense of having me on your skin,” she said. Coty Beauty, the firm behind the fragrance, has not yet confirmed the details behind the name of the creation. But given Gaga’s fondness for the ‘Monster’ association, fans are assuming the perfume would be called Monster.
